Court Lets Arab MK ’Mavi Mamara’ Zoabi Off the Hook

JewishPress Logo

Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by nationalists Michael Ben-Ari, a former Knesset Member, and Itamar Ben-Gvir, to demand criminal charges be filed against MK Haneen Zoabi for her participation in the IHH terrorist-backed Mavi Mamara flotilla in 2010.

Ben-Ari and Ben-Gvir took their case to the court after government prosecutors decided not to indict her. They noted that the court did not ask to review all of the evidence before deciding against the appeal.

This is the second time the court has stepped up to bat for Zoabi. The Central Election Commission last year decided that Zoabi’s activism on the Mavi Mamara precluded her from running for election in the Knesset. The court overruled the decision.
